Birthday Girl

You can click on the image to enlarge it
 Can you ever have enough birthday cards?  Seems I'm always looking for one so for this week's MFT challenge I decided to go with a birthday stamp and inked up the a la Mode "Birthday Girl".  The paper is from a package I've been wanting to break open for awhile, it's "Up, Up and Away" by Kaiser Craft.  The colors and images could be used for a masculine card.  But if you dress it up with lots of soft pink embellies it becomes feminine and romantic.

don't forget the inside

Here's the deets:
stamp - My Favorite Things a la Modes "Birthday Girl"
ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
paper - Georgia Pacific white cs for image; Recollections beige and dark brown cs for mats; Kaiser Craft "Up, Up and Away" dp
miscellaneous - copics; beige burlap twine; charm; rick rack; prima flowers; mini brads, brads; sewing machine;

Here's the challenges:
